What secret lies inside the deepest chambers of caves? Are there undiscovered species of life-forms such as mutant cave-dwelling cannibals which evolved on their own to survive in such a dark and wet environment? Well, nobody knows. The only thing certain is that, the list or inventory of cave-dwelling organisms is still incomplete. Only recently, researchers have discovered a primitive-looking eel from an undersea cave in Palau that retains ancient Dinosaur-Era features thus, earning the title of “living fossil.” Right now, there are still caves waiting to be discovered and explored around the world and we don’t know what wonders lie inside of them. The only thing known to us is that there is beauty, there is art, and there is symmetry of nature inside the unforgiving environment of caves. Thanks to the few daring photographers who share their unique and creative captures of some of the world’s beautiful caves.

So here in this article, we are showcasing some of the breathtaking examples of cave photography taken under challenging conditions. In most cases, photographers have to deal with the dim lighting inside caves if they at all exist. Taking clear shots thus is no easy task.

You can visit the source of these photos as well their respective author’s photo-stream to see how they are done. Also if you are a photographer yourself you should take a look at the photography website themes showcased here. Having an inspiring and engaging website is essential if you want to show your work to the world.
